It's Cool To Be Smart at Guilford County Schools

Guilford County Schools, along with Rice Toyota, will host the 9th annual “Cool to Be Smart” event this Sunday, July 31st at 2:00 p.m. at the Greensboro Coliseum.

Guilford County Schools Cool To Be Smart, Guilford County SchoolsThe brightest Guilford County Schools recent high school graduates are invited to this event to win great prizes including the grand prize of a new Scion tC.  To earn a coveted invitation to the Cool to Be Smart event, students must earn a 3 or higher on 5 or more AP exams or a 4 or higher on 5 IB exams.  This year, over 400 Guilford County Schools high school seniors are invited to the event.  Every student will recieve an iTunes gift card and one-in-four will walk away with a larger prize, such as iPads, iPod Nanos and iPod Touches.


Guilford County Schools is the third largest school district in North Carolina with 71,000 students at 120 schools.  In addition to our excellent traditional schools, GCS has been very innovative in implementing new programs and schools.  The public school system offers a wide-variety of education experiences. 


Our traditional, neighborhood schools offer programs for advanced learners and those with special needs.  Many local elementary schools offer licensed after-school care (called ACES) until 6:00 p.m. for only $46/week. 


Our school enrollment has grown steadily over the years and our voters have consistently voted in favor of school bonds so that we can build new facilities and updated older facilities.  Our new Guilford Northern Middle School and Guilford Northern High School, which opened in 2008, were built ”green” for added energy efficiency. 


In addition to our tradition schools, we have schools that specifically serve our advanced learners, offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma program and foreign language immersion.  Other schools focus on science, technology and the performing and visual arts.  It is also one of the few places in the country where you can get a free Montessori education for your student.  More information about these programs can be found at Guilford County Magnet Schools.


In addition, Guilford County Schools College Tech Prep Program offers another way for students to earn college credit while still in high school.  Students in the program pick an area of concentration from one of the 18 courses of study offered.  After graduating, students are eligible for a full-tuition, two-year scholarship to GuilfordTechnology Community College. 


Guilford County Schools has just introduced Parent Assistant to enhance communications between parents and teachers.  This online system provides up-to-date information on attendance, assignments and grades.  In addition, the Parent Academy offers free classes and workshops throughout the year for all Guilford County School parents.  The topics range from nutrition to kindergarten-readiness to applying for college tuition assistance and everything in-between!
